Those who attended the Language and Culture Night which was held in Millstreet Community School on 10th May will know that a journalist and cameraman working for TG4 were present. They interviewed Irish teacher Ms Majella Horgan and three TY students, Jennifer Kelly, Gemma O’Regan and Katie Healy earlier in the evening. An edited version of what they filmed will be shown on TG4 on Sunday 20th May between 7pm and 7.30pm as part of Nuacht. The clip may only be two minutes in duration but it is good that they were able to be present to document such a worthwhile and memorable event.
A truly magnificent range of wonderful language and cultural presentations took place at the annual event in Millstreet Community School on Thursday, 10th May 2018. It was covered by TG4 for the television series “Guth an Phobail” for later transmission. John Tarrant covered it for the “Corkman” while we were there for our Millstreet website. Here we share a selection of images from the occasion which was a splendid credit to the participants and the organisers where our Irish Culture was creatively included in the wonderful mixture of global enriching cultures. More images to follow in a future feature. Click on the pictures to enlarge. (S.R.) [read more …] “Superb Language & Culture Night Filmed by TG4 at MCS”
